When I double-click this word in LHI I get Power Lookup with no definition, even when DBL Hebrew is open.

 

After a few repeats I eventually get DBL Hebrew to open.

The logs show that the response is often interrupted by wanting to search my Collections!

Dave, I think it looks up different stuff depending on where in the interlinear column you double-click.

If I double-click on the Manuscript line, it opens the lexicon.

If I double-click on the Lemma line, it tries to look up the first lemma, and doesn't find it, so it opens the Power Lookup. (which is the default action when a keylink doesn't find anything--why? I don't know.)

If I double-click on the lexical value or english literal translation, I get a lookup of the English word (child).

And if I double-click on the morph line, it tries to do a lookup on the morph code, which fails and brings up the power lookup again.

But I agree it's very confusing.

It's not very sensitive to where I click, so I'm never sure that I will get the manuscript / lemma, or first / second word as I had been concentrating on those two lines. It would be good to have this improved. Surely double-click can pick up homonyms?
